The Royal Opera House is currently closed due to the COVID-19 epidemic. They have given us the following updates:
We can now confirm that the Live broadcast of Swan Lake has unfortunately been cancelled on April 1st – it’s very unlikely that the Opera House will be open by April 1st. The ROH are working to provide a recorded version from an earlier season – this will be available on DCP and Blu Ray with the available screening period still to be determined (either late April or early May onwards TBC).
It is planned to release a recorded version filmed recently during the earlier part of the run at the Royal Opera House – this will be available on DCP and Blu Ray. We don’t have a current date that it can be screened from yet but possibly will be from late April onwards. Please note that the role of Florestan will be performed by David Butt Philip on this future recording as Jonas Kaufmann was unfortunately unwell at the time.
CAVELLERIA/ PAGLIACCI, DANTE PROJECT & ELEKTRA
We’re waiting for news about when the Opera House will re-open. Once we have further information on these titles, we will of course be in touch with you.
If you have tickets for any of these screenings and are happy to hold onto them for reuse on a revised date (to be advised), please do so and we will be in touch as soon as we have further news. If you would prefer to receive a credit note for a future performance, please make contact with our Box Office on: [email protected]
We thank you for your patience and support at this very difficult time.
Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky
Liam Scarlett’s glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival. While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet.
The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece filled with iconic moments.
Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside. An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.
